Samsung is doing pretty well in the smartphone business. The South Korean firm is selling hundreds of millions of smartphone units every year. This helps Samsung grab the number one position in the smartphone industry. In March, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus following months of rumors and reports.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are not a huge upgrade over their predecessors, but there are a lot of new things that attract users worldwide. The S9 and S9 Plus won’t satisfy hardcore fans thanks to their same old design. During the first quarter of the year, Samsung lost the fight against Apple, mainly due to slow sales of S9 and S9 Plus.
Tech experts say that Samsung needs something new to reclaim some lost ground on the market. Rumors regarding the next generation Galaxy S have started to heat up. According to recent sources, the upcoming Galaxy S phone will not come with iris scanning. In reality, iris scanning was first debuted on the Galaxy Note 7. The new security measure was met with mostly positive reviews from users and tech experts at launch. However, Samsung faced the unprecedented recall of its Note 7 due to battery issues.
With the launch of the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung retained the iris scanning functionality from the Note 7. The Note 8 is a great success so far on the market, with millions of units sold every quarter. Sources say that Samsung has been working on a new security measure that may make its debut on the Galaxy S10.
A lot of experts claim that the Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung-branded phone to include an in-display fingerprint scanner. In reality, Samsung was previously rumored to bake an in-display scanner into its Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, but it was nowhere to be found at launch. Sources say that Samsung needs more time to make sure that everything works perfectly at launch.
Besides, the Galaxy S10 is believed to come in two screen sizes, including a 5.8″ and a 6.3″ panel. This means that we will have the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus next year.
